Friday Top! Every alternate Friday Artprice publishes a theme-based auction ranking. This week: the ten highest auction sales in Germany in 2011 compared to the top ten for 2012.

Wednesday, May 2, the art market acquired a new all-time record for the sale of an artwork at a public auction when Sotheby’s New York sold of MUNCH’s The Scream for $107m ($119.9m including fees).

The price index for German expressionist masters has been particularly dynamic over the past 2 years.Underpinning this price progression: a rarefaction of the offer; some exceptional works coming to market and plenty of recent exhibitions.For example, Emil Nolde is currently being honoured with a retrospective at the Grand Palais in Paris – until 19 January 2009.

Works by the Die Brücke and Der Blau Reiter groups have been spiralling in price since 1999 (up 25% over the year). After four years of steady increase, from a base of 100 in 1997 the price index for Expressionist works is now 28 points higher than the Artprice Global Index.. In these hard-to-better market conditions, Christie’s is now organising its tenth auction of German and Austrian Art.
